Water and sanitation practitioners, policy makers, government, utilities, and regulators particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
This webinar is jointly organised by the International Water Association (IWA) in partnership with Waterlinks as a part of a series under the IWA’s Inclusive Urban Sanitation Initiative.
Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) face significant challenges that hinder effective water & sanitation service delivery. These include but are not limited to: rapid urbanisation which often results in high population growth; missing or inadequate resources to finance the development and maintenance of service infrastructure; missing or ineffective policies and regulations; and weak or lack of clear institutional mandates to enforce the regulation. These challenges make it difficult to promote inclusive urban sanitation, particularly in LMICs. For these countries, inclusive urban sanitation is a distant target.
Hence, effective and practical actions, such as effective institutions, regulatory mechanisms, and sustainable financing are needed to ensure adequate, equitable, and safely managed sanitation in urban settings. This webinar will present cases from the Philippines and Bangladesh where:
The two experiences will build on current efforts to progress a widely applicable framework to advance inclusive urban sanitation to achieve SDG 6.2, especially in LMICs.
